Please let us know if you are coming to an AIM MT Forum and whether you want the Forum provided lunch or plan to bring your own.

Want a PVI?


Our Regional faculty provide no-charge coaching as a service to you, our members, at every AIM weekend! You can get 25 minutes as an individual (or 55 minutes as a quartet) of customized, individualized coaching in either vocal or visual elements of your performance.

PVIs (Personal Vocal Instruction) and quartet coaching time slots are booked on a first come, first served basis, so don’t wait! When all available time slots are full, we won’t be able to fill any more requests. No on-site registrations are accepted for PVIs or quartet coaching.


Please note that you cannot request a specific instructor – instructor availability varies throughout the weekend. If you want a PVI or quartet coaching with a specific Regional faculty, contact them separately for a time outside of an AIM weekend. The current Regional coaching faculty members and their areas of focus are listed here.


PVI spots are filling up fast. Be sure to request yours before the January 6th deadline.


PVI Signups are closed.


Questions? Concerns? Contact the PVI Coordinator.

Quartet/Double Quartet Parade and YWIH Contest


Quartets who have not competed together as a unit will have an opportunity to have a contest-like experience in advance of the official Regional Quartet Competition. Quartets who have performed at a prior competition for Evaluation Only are eligible to perform at the Q/DQ parade.


The participating quartets are evaluated for their performance and are given letter scores and judging comments of a coaching nature. Numerical scores are not given, rankings are not published, and no winners are selected. This parade is held strictly for exposure and experience.


Quartets who are considering entering the Open Division, in which they present a longer entertainment package with MC work, are eligible to perform in the Q/DQ Parade. However, their performance will be limited to two songs with no MC work, following the rules for the International Division.


Double Quartets are encouraged to perform as part of the Q/DQ Parade. They will also receive letter scores and judging comments, for their ongoing education.


YWIH (Young Women In Harmony) Quartets may also perform as part of the Q/DQ Parade, assuming they have met the eligibility and registration requirements stated on the instruction sheet and application form. They will be evaluated using regular Quartet Competition scoresheets and judging standards. No separate judging standards or scoresheets will be used for YWIH Quartets.


To sign up for the parade, please fill out the appropriate form below and send it to the contact listed on the form.  The deadline for the form is January 4, 2017.


SIGNUPS are now closed.
